The top spring-loaded adjusting section of the Side Sliding Window pet door appears as an "H" piece when viewed from the side. The overall width of this piece is 13/16" (Will fit into most any sliding window track).
The spring-loaded adjustment provides for a 2 1/2" range for proper fitting into your opening. Most top tracks in sliding windows do not have any center rails, however, if you do have this feature then the top section can straddle any rail at the top 5/8" wide or narrower.
The spring-loaded top is secured with 2 thumbscrew locks, accessible from inside the house only, someone from the exterior of the house would not be able to compress or remove the unit.
The bottom section of the Side Sliding Window Pet Door has an overall width of 5/8". A semi-circle, "C" channel is centered and runs the length of the bottom. This "C" channel is design to straddle the center rail in the channel on the bottom of the sliding window track.
By straddling this center rail, the Side Sliding Window Pet Door will remain centered to the frame of your sliding window when closed to this unit.
Note:If the center rail in the channel on the bottom is wider than 5/16", then this patio Insert will not be able to straddle it and as a result may not fit properly in your opening.
Double Check overall channel widths also to ensure proper fitting - must be at least 13/16" at the top and at least 5/8" wide in bottom and side channels.
Ideal Pet Side Sliding Window Installation Instructions
Slide the panel against door jamb and make sure that top is fully extended, not tilted to one side.
Hand-tighten knobs by turning clockwise to lock the panel in place.
To permanently install, you may screw through the aluminum fins that protrude on the existing frame of your door. Drill through the fins into the panel. Install two screws in the top and two in the side by the bottom of the panel. Do not put any screws into the frame by the glass as breakage may occur.
Optional permanent placement for fixed panel sliding door. Remove screws that hold fixed glass panel in place and slide over. Insert the panel and re-fasten fixed glass panel.

(Placement Options-see above)
With sliding window in closed position, place lock in desired location and bolt in the retraced position, pointed toward the sliding glass door or stationary window rail. Leave approximately 1/8ï¿½ clearance between bolt tip and aluminum rail.
Holding lock firmly in place, mark screw holes and center of bolt in rail of sliding door or stationary window.
Drill two 5/32ï¿½ holes for mounting screws and a 3/8ï¿½ hole for locking bolt. Caution: Do not drill into glass.

Weather Stripping Placement
There are two pieces of weather stripping included in this package. A thin, wide draft-stopper with an adhesive strip that attaches to the back side of the sliding window that extends to the glass of the fixed window.
The other thin piece of weather stripping is the foam bumper, also with an adhesive backing, it attaches to the panel to provide a better seal when the sliding window closes against the panel.
